About Wakatipu Grill
This lakefront all day dining restaurant offers the best
of New Zealand in a magnificent setting. Admire the stunning views over Lake Wakatipu or take to the terrace and relax by the outdoor fire pit.
The food was nice however I found it to be pricey for what we had. $52.00 for a piece of Ribeye steak. What was really disappointing was the overall service. We stood waiting for about 5 minutes before anyone acknowledged us despite there being plenty of staff around that could have said hello, or smiled or said someone will be with your soon. I understand they were busy but i felt through the whole experience we were just a number. Unfortunately this did not meet our expectations.
My Fiance and I really enjoyed our experience at the Wakatipu Grill. Staff were really lovely and the food was delicious. We would highly recommend and already looking forward to dinning with them again.
Very pleasant, lovely staff, and great “on-site” dining option.
A pity some staff reached across to serve customer across the table... not all the staff did this but very annoying. A little training needed. Rest was perfect dinner.... thanks
The restaurant seemed to be a bit understaffed and could do with more staff.
Everything was amazing. We are locals and hadn't been for a while. Decided to catch the ferry across - perfect. Greeted at the restaurant like long time friends, great table with views. All staff were super friendly and attentive. Food super tasty and presented beautifully. Cauliflower dish and the salmon dish a stand out. Cant wait to go back. Well done team.
Appreciate the locals card and wonderful extras because of the birthday guest. Superb service. Delicious food.
Lovely venue, but average food for a premium price.
Food was good, but service was very slow - The staff were friendly and doing their best, but were just not able to keep up with the volume of dinners, which meant that everything took a lot longer than it should have. The staff that were there that night put in a good effort, but given how busy the restaurant was that night, I think there should have been at least two more staff on. It was fortunate that we were not in a hurry, because dinner took a very long time...
Food was great but the seat was quite uncomfortable, we sat on a white plastic one
We had a wonderful dinner here on our last night in New Zealand. Great service and lots of little special touches made this a meal to remember.
Fantastic service and food. Amit on the bar is always very welcoming and obliging.
Excellent service and food.
Wonderful evening ... great service ..great main and dessert ..starter not up to the same standard...hope this is helpful ... thank you..
I’ve visited the grill a couple of times. The food is great and Grant and his team do an excellent job. The service delivery is somewhere poor. - not acknowledging arrival - no table ready at time of booking - long time to take a drink order - no explanation of food or specials - no follow up on how we enjoyed the food The grill competes with restaurants in town but value for price and service is not to be compared. I think the team can do better.
Another outstanding meal & service Many thanks Eion & Jan
Fantastic First Table experience! Top end dining, lovely ambience and attentive service
As long time locals this is a favourite dining spot for us. Great lake edge location and relaxed dining atmosphere. Great food and service made for a top night.
Amazing service beautiful food. We were treated like royalty. Thank you so much!
The manager from Kerry Ireland who seated us set the atmosphere for a great night. I have been to wakitipu grill several times and come back each time for the excellent service and delicious food. However, this time the bar was set even higher. The manager from Kerry helped us celebrate our new baby and grandparents visiting from the UK from the moment he sat us. Then we had Laura from Falkirk as our waitress who’s service was seamless and delightful. All around a great experience- thank you! The food, as always - incredible!
Service was excellent and food so good
Excellent experience, as always.
The maître was outstanding when he greeted us coming in and the waitress that looked after our table was great. Well done
Hey again a first class experience. One of my top three desserts (braeburn apple banoffee)
